Lacy Sunshine Violet

Having a play in the Lacy Sunshine Facebook Group with the adorable Violet Flower Pot Pretty.  The current contest ends tomorrow and for once I'm not in at the last minute.  I was excited to find an ancient Colorbok stack by Tracy Porter that had some great coordinating Dp's and used a die from Heartfelt Creations I've had for several years for the very first time.  The peel off sentiment on the front allows me to enter it in the current Use a Sentiment Challenge on the Lacy Sunshine Blog so this card does double duty.  WooHoo!

I really enjoyed coloring her up, especially her curly hair.  Paper pieced the cup with some of the DP from the stack as well.  Used Liquid Pearls for the centers of the violets to add some shine.  Of course, she's fussy cut and popped for dimension.

It's a gate fold card which I don't make very often, and a square to boot.  Took this pic so you could see the pretty DP on the left hand side.

I'm also entering this in the Simon Says Monday We Love Stamps Challenge and 613 Avenue Create Anything Goes/Create Your Own Challenge (using image, die cut, liquid pearls, flowers, and lace (hopefully the lacy die cut will count here) .
